How are unique item names generated?
I recognize some custom ones that are based on realms or characters.
The rest (most of them) are quite random and some even ridiculous.
Why the screaming vest of pancakes for example?
Is it possible the player base can make up names and suggest them somewhere?
Perhaps preferably based on in game history or stories?
Unique items are generally just bought to draw attention to their characters but they have no real meaning usually.
If people associate items more with their religion, realm, region, duchy or family they identify themselves with these items thus giving the items an extra value.
characters can use items as formal symbols of certain positions for example.
There would be an actual crown of a certain realm, which could get lost, found again and possibly sold back or even cause a conflict between realms.
The item would randomly appears somewhere and there might be a noble walking around with the crown of a certain realm, but that certain realm can always deny that this crown is the real crown, set to destroy it or obtain it.
